Nitrogen requirements of borage and coriander
Canola, borage and coriander were grown in a growth chamber with treatments of increasing rates of added nitrogen. Dry matter yield was measured at the early-flowering stage. Both borage and coriander had a lower potential ...
A decade of herbicide-resistant crops in Canada
This review examines some agronomic, economic, and environmental impacts of herbicide-resistant (HR) canola, soybean, corn, and wheat in Canada after 10 years of growing HR cultivars. The rapid adoption of HR canola and ...
Agronomic and economic benefits of fertilizing crops
Operating costs at farm level can be divided into essential, enhancement, maintenance, protection and insurance. Save growth hormones, which are not common in western Canada, fertilizer and better quality of seed are the ...
The economics of potato crop rotations in southern Manitoba
Rapid expansion of the potato industry in Manitoba has led to increased potato production in Manitoba. While the introduction of potatoes into current cropping systems may provide an opportunity for producers to increase ...
Impact of tillage system, preceding crops, and P fertilizer on economic performance of flax production
Conservation farming is a system approach that considers all factors that affect production. Reduced tillage is one of the methods of conservation farming and is becoming increasingly popular on the prairie. This will ...
Update on fall dormant seeded canola research
How well does camelina tolerate root zone salinity?
Crops of CS15 camelina and InVigor 9590 canola grown in saline rooting media were evaluated for plant emergence, height growth, grain yield, and oil production. The experiment utilized Canada’s Salinity Tolerance Testing ...
Considering belowground nitrogen of crops grown in prairie agroecosystems
Grain legumes can improve the yield of succeeding cereal crops through nitrogen and non-nitrogen benefits. Included among these is the input of symbiotically-fixed N from the remaining legume residues following grain ...
Urea treatment affects safe rates of seed placed nitrogen in Saskatchewan
Placing urea in close proximity to seed can cause seedling damage resulting in poor crop establishment. Plant densities are often well below the optimum, and plants that do emerge can exhibit poor vigor. Several strategies ...
Effect of soil amended with thin stillage on growth of canola and soil properties in a controlled environment study
A growth chamber study was conducted to evaluate the potential use of thin stillage as a soil fertilizer amendment. Seven treatments; control, 3 thin stillage rates (100, 200, and 400 kg N ha¯¹) and 3 urea rates (100, ...
